A bag's anatomy

Okay, I have been battling a cold (caught from the kids). I think I'm winning the battle! We went for our weekly run to Wally-World (I needed tissues) and then we stopped at Big Lots. Lo and behold they had yarn for $1.00 a skein. Of course could I pass it up? Heck no. So I came home with Bernat yarn. I am not a yarn snob, I can't afford to be one. Anything that can be knitted is knitted on my needles i.e. angora, wool, acrylic, jute, fabric from bulky to lace weight etc. It just doesn't matter to me 'cos I LOVE KNITTING! Last evening I sat on the couch with a nice cup of lemon tea and my tissues and whipped up the red bag while watching Grey's Anatomy. I'm making these for Christmas gifts. I'm still debating on the handles. Any suggestions? By the way who thinks Meredith is going to go back with Derek?

Mitten in Pink

I have neglected my blog recently so I'm going to update. Christmas is how far away? . I decided to knit a pair of mittens out of it for a Christmas gift. (Can't say whose gift in case she reads this) It has a bit of silk in it and was a dream to spin and even nicer to knit. I don't profess to be a professional spinner, I'm just a knitter who occasionally enjoys going through the whole process of making one's own yarn. So here it is The Mitten in Pink! I know there's only one, the other one is on the needles.
